Scarborough-born Eliza Carthy has two Mercury Prize nominations, eight BBC Folk Awards, innumerable other accolades, and has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists that include Paul Weller, Nick Cave and Joan Baez.

A truly inventive and innovative singer and fiddle-player, she is a gifted musical conceptualist and arguably the most engaging performer of her generation.

Grammy-nominated Tim Eriksen’s musical roots are in the western Massachusetts hardcore punk scene of the 1980‘s, but he became immersed in traditional folk music through his parents’ influence.

One of only six UK dates, this show at the Hailsham Pavilion on Sunday, October 27 (7.30pm) brings together a pleasing diversity in folk styles, the sass and sophistication of Carthy, and the gritty multi-instrumental genius of Tim Eriksen.

Opening the show is Grace Petrie, whose brand of new folk punk is rapidly earning her a reputation as one of today’s most exciting songwriters and she brings her passionate, politically aware songs to this, the first Pavilion show of the new season. Details on 01323 841414
